Air pump and air stones!

So what are some tips on installing an air system in a planted tank?

Put a check valve in the airline tubing to prevent water going down the tube and destroying your pump.

Apart from that, for a normal air pump and air stone it's just the normal thing. Pick an appropriate size air pump and air stone and pop it in the tank. I like the Tetra APS series.

Alright sounds pretty easy to me! But I'm planing on doing an air stone
in the middle one on the right and one on the lefnt! Do you think this is too much?

Probably better to just get a more powerful air pump and one long air stone in the middle.
